Abstract:

"The Leabhar Branach ... comprises the poem-books of four generations of the ruling family of the O'Byrnes of Gabhal Raghnuill in Co. Wicklow. The poems ... may be dated, progressively, over the period between roughly 1550 and 1630 ... the Leabhar Branach, apart from its lin- guistic value, is important in that it affords us some insight from an Irish standpoint into the life and fortunes of a sept bordering the Pale ... in contrast with Anglo-Irish political documents of the period, it reflects the outlook, policy, and culture of the more patriotic Gaelic nobility."
